BENEFITS OF GT.

Group technology was introduced by

Frederick Taylor in 1919 as a way to


improve productivity.
One of long term benefits of group

technology is it helps implement a


manufacturing strategy aimed at greater
automation.

Group technology (GT) is a manufacturing


philosophy that seeks to improve productivity
by grouping parts and products with similar
characteristics into families and forming
production cells with a group of dissimilar
machines and processes.

A necessary step in maintaining a high quality
level and profitable production.
